March Muttness™ 2021

HSSA Finishes in 2nd Place in Annual March Muttness™ Virtual Fundraiser

Thursday, March 25th, 2021

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona (HSSA) is excited to share that March Muttness™ 2021 has raised over $206,000! March Muttness™ is a virtual fundraising tournament in which 32 shelters across the country compete with each other to raise the most funds to support homeless pets.

This year, HSSA came in 2nd place, losing the championship round to Ten Lives Club, a cat rescue and adoption group in New York.

Steve Farley, HSSA CEO says, "Congratulations to all 32 shelters who competed in March Muttness, and the generous donors who rooted them on with donations. Thanks to you, we raised more than $206,000 to help homeless pets across the country, and along the way we had tons of fun with classic rivalries, Cinderella stories, and dramatic buzzer-beaters. I can’t wait till next year!"

Thanks to March Muttness™ sponsor Pacifico, all 32 animal shelters across the county got to take home at least $500 in prize money.

HSSA would also like to thank Tito's Vodka for sponsoring the Sensational 16 round.

HSSA says they are thrilled to see how many wonderful donors across the country have come out to play for their local shelters. This movement will help countless animals in the year to come.

March Muttness™ was created to help shelters through this uncertain time in history. With your help pets will continue to be cared for no matter what. Thank you for participating and cheering us on!
